Sponsor contact is working.
The StopRush Project has announced that over 2,200 sponsors have pulled ads from Limbaugh's show, via documented messages/statements. Many other sponsors have left his show quietly, bringing the actual amount of sponsors who have left, to a higher, unknown total.
FlushRush, StopRush.net, this Petition, DK Diaries, and numerous activist groups, are causing an immense impact on the demise of Limbaugh's hate-filled show. We can all join the fight. This Petition is sent to 30+ sponsors at a time and lists ways to get involved. http://www.change.org/...
How does Limbaugh stay afloat, given this mass sponsor exodus? It's now been reported that FreedomWorks, linked to The Tea Party and Super PAC, has been picking up much of the slack for Rush, after his loss of advertisers/revenue. Adding insult to injury, some sponsors say they have been offered free radio spots on Limbaugh's show, and turned them down. Why would a company want to risk permanent damage to their name and reputation, in the minds of millions of consumers, by aligning with Rush Limbaugh?
Rush, you just don't get to call Sandra Fluke, or any woman, a 'slut' and 'prostitute' on our public airways - and get away with it.Well, it was a little more than calling her a 'slut' and 'prostitute'...
This boycott is gaining momentum daily. Sponsors, listeners, and now, much of the Republican Party, are distancing themselves from Rush. His ship is sinking, and with him he's taking his lies, misogyny, racism, gay hatred, and bigotry. The people are speaking, sponsors are listening, and we are witnessing the true beauty and essence of free speech.
To get involved:
Thank you, Richard Myers. We are finishing this work. Rest in peace.
